We are pleased to host the World Uncertainty Index (WUI) developed by Hites Ahir (International Monetary Fund), Nicholas Bloom (Stanford University) and Davide Furceri (International Monetary Fund). They construct quarterly indices of economic uncertainty for 143 countries from 1996 onwards using frequency counts of "uncertainty" (and its variants) in the quarterly Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) country reports. The level of trade uncertainty, however, varies significantly across regions and income groups. The recent rise in the uncertainty index has been felt the most in the Western Hemisphere, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. In contrast, trade uncertainty remains moderately low in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa. uncertainty in the UK is counted towards an increasing EPU in Germany and contributes to the European index. International news coverage in local newspapers probably inflates index values during major events such as Brexit. Another caveat is the representativeness of the newspapers taken for the index construction. We build a new country uncertainty index for 143 countries using the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) country reports. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first effort to construct a panel index of uncertainty for a large set of developed and developing countries. The index captures uncertainty related to economic and political developments, This column presents a new index of world trade uncertainty for 143 countries, measured on a quarterly basis from 1996 onwards, using the Economist Intelligence Unit country reports. The index shows that uncertainty in trade is rising sharply. This has important implications for global economic prospects. Each national EPU index reflects the relative frequency of own-country newspaper articles that contain a trio of terms pertaining to the economy (E), policy (P) and uncertainty (U). In other words, each monthly national EPU index value is proportional to the share of own-country newspaper articles that discuss economic policy uncertainty in that month. We develop a new method to measure economic policy uncertainty and test its dynamic relationship with output, investment, and employment. We find that, since 2008, economic policy uncertainty in the United States has been at a level approximately two times its long run average. We extend our approach to other countries, finding elevated levels of economic policy uncertainty abroad, as well.

Economic Policy Uncertainty Index for Europe Businesses in the United Kingdom have already endured more than three years of Brexit uncertainty. The level of trade uncertainty, however, varies significantly across regions and income groups. The recent rise in the uncertainty index has been felt the most in the Western Hemisphere, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe. In contrast, trade uncertainty remains moderately low in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa. Uncertainty about global trade disputes, the economic challenges stemming from climate change and geopolitical factors are contributing to increased levels of policy-related uncertainty in Europe. Understanding the sources and dynamics of uncertainty which hits the economy is valuable for policymakers, including central banks. The World Uncertainty Index reveals how uncertainty in the world has evolved over time, whether it is synchronised across countries, and how it compares across income groups and political regimes. The global economy is growing, but so is uncertainty. While spikes in trade uncertainty relate mostly to US-China trade tensions, increases in trade uncertainty have been also felt in key US trading partners such as Mexico, Canada, the European Union and Japan (Figure 2). Figure 2 Country-specific World Trade Uncertainty index, 2018Q2 to 2019Q2 In cross-cultural psychology, uncertainty avoidance is how cultures differ on the amount of tolerance they have of unpredictability. When it comes to the tolerance of unpredictability, the areas which uncertainty avoidance deals with the most are: technology, law, and religion.

While spikes in trade uncertainty relate mostly to US-China trade tensions, increases in trade uncertainty have been also felt in key US trading partners such as Mexico, Canada, the European Union and Japan (Figure 2). Figure 2 Country-specific World Trade Uncertainty index, 2018Q2 to 2019Q2
